HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 cc129-30W
153. Mr. Charles Smith

asked the Minister of Agriculture what action has been taken or is proposed to implement the recommendation contained in paragraph 35 of the Report of the Court of Inquiry into the Stoppage of Work in the Trawler Fishing Industry (1946) which was to the effect that there should be a full inquiry into the distribution of fish and other matters connected with the industry.

Mr. T. Williams

The Departments concerned have very full information about the fishing industry and it is considered that no useful purpose would be served by holding a further inquiry.
